    Ive got an old fender bassman 135 valve head , im using two peavey cabs with a 1x15 black widow in each . Im also using a sans amp , which boosts things a bit . Would differant valves help , or maybe a power amp ??? any advice please ? its a lovely sounding amp it just needs more balls !
  2. i think some valves out put more power than others, but i dont think it makes much of a difference, think you are pretty much stuck with what you have

    you could always get 2x215 cabs, or use more sensative speakers
